To create a time frame, click on the blue Add Time Frame button on the right side under the Time Frames bar.
The Name Field allows you to give the Time Frame a name that will help you identify it. The name cannot be changed once the rule has been created. If you want to change the name, delete the rule and recreate it with the new name. Under the Name field, you will see three options for when the Time Frame should be in effect:
- Always – This option makes the Time Frame always in effect, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- Days of the week and times – Allows you to select specific days of the week and the hours in the day you want the Time Frame to take effect. When selecting this option, the days of the week appear with a check box that allow you select which days you would like the time frame active. Once selecting a day of the week, a blue bar appears allowing you to slide the ends to when you would like the time frame to stop and start.
If would like your time frame to be in effect from 7am to 7pm, simply click on the edge of the blue bar and slide them over to the desired time as shown below.
If you would like a break in the middle of the Time Frame, click the green Plus sign next to the 11:59 pm as shown below. You will then see another blue line appear that represents when the Time Frame will take effect.
- Specific dates or ranges – This option will allow you to configure a Time Frame to be in effect for specific dates and times. After selecting the Specific date or ranges options, you will see the to and from dates.
When clicking in the To and From date fields, a calendar will appear. Select the dates you would like the Time Frame to start and stop. Clicking the green plus sign will allow you to add more date ranges for the Time Frame to be in effect.
